Gudetama Bread Buns

I have been wanting to make these Gudetama bread buns for a while!

This fluffy white bread recipe is not new in my "collection" of recipes, just that I always failed in these character tear apart bread, so I didn't manage to share earlier (lol)! It's an egg-free recipe, so it's good if your child is allergic towards eggs.

Baymax Snowskin Mooncakes

Yesterday I stumbled upon a snowskin recipe, and I thought of just trying it out to see if it's nicer. This recipe uses oil, so I think it's definitely "healthier"!

Traditional Baked Mooncakes

Do you like to make these traditional baked mooncakes?
For me, I started off making snowskin mooncakes first, because it's easier - and it's true! I find that wrapping the dough for baked mooncakes to be slightly more difficult than snowskin ones, but can also be overcome easily with practice :)

Swirl Patterned Snowskin Mooncakes (Blueberry / Chendol)

Like I've mentioned here, I love mooncakes! Both eating and making them haha!

My husband shares the same "love" as me, so he's always happy to eat mooncakes that I make - especially it saves him money :p

A few days back, I made some blueberry snowskin mooncakes and gula melaka chendol snowskin mooncakes. I love fruity snowskin mooncakes!

Mooncake Biscuits 公仔饼

Other than the Chinese New Year, Mooncake Festival is one of the festivals that I like - just because I love eating mooncakes!

I also like to experiment with making of different flavored mooncakes. I have stopped making them since 2 years ago, mainly because I didn't have time due to caring for my child :p

This year, I finally could have some time to get the ingredients and got down to making them!

Coping with Gestational Diabetes

When I was about 28 weeks pregnant, my gynae ordered an OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test) for me.

I was actually dreading the test, but never thought that I would be diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes!

Wholegrain Pandan Sponge Cake

As you would be able to see, I am baking more often these days using wholegrain flour, coconut sugar, and coconut oil.

I have to be honest that I really am not a fan of anything-coconut (lol!), but I am glad that my gestational diabetic condition "forced" me to try coconut products. And they are lovely!

My husband has been asking me to bake pandan cake, which I have not baked once before! Hahaha - I guess that's because I am lazy to blend and squeeze out the pandan juice :p
